The five "architectures" are:
commercial van unibody
Battery Electric Vehicle
I guess they found a way to share basic designs and parts while still keeping everything very flexible. I think VW and Toyota are doing the same thing.
This was happening before Trump took over. If you want more cars to sell over SUVs, you need higher gas prices (which would also not help sports cars).
Actual details on Performance Pack Level 2:
305/30R19 Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2s all around
Stiffer Anti-Roll bars
Lowered 0.5 inch
Different suspension tuning
The difference between the EPA sticker and CAFE mpg absolutely matters. The 54.5mpg CAFE is only about 42 mpg EPA. And it also depends on the vehicle's footprint. The RWD F-150 with the 2.7L V6 already meets the CAFE standards through 2024.
This is the standards that cars have to meet...
I like how his made-up definitions keep changing as the thread goes on too. Earlier in the thread it was twin-turbo=parallel, biturbo=sequential. Now a twin turbo has to have two intercoolers and intake manifolds and a biturbo can be sequential or parallel.
What are you talking about that on these Hot-V engines the exhaust wraps up behind the engine to "leech exhaust gases from the back?"
That's not how they work at all. Hot-V means the intake and exhaust manifolds are switched. The intake is on the outside of the engine and the exhaust is...
Literally any engine with two turbos is called a twin-turbo, or biturbo. Yes there are different types of twin turbo setups, but making up your own definitions for these words is not helping anybody.
Why do you still keep repeating the same lies even after you've been proven wrong by several people? Twin Turbo and BiTurbo are the same thing. And Audi and AMG use two equally-sized twin-scroll turbos in parallel.
V12s don't use flat plane cranks. They have the same advantages as FPC V8s because they are naturally balanced so they don't need huge counterweights, but the crank pins are places every 120°, not 180°.
Bi-Turbo and Twin Turbo are the same thing. It's literally the first sentence in the Wikipedia article.
BMW and Audi use two twin scroll turbos. They also use a hot-vee design which I highly doubt we will see in a Mustang. But the hot-vee design...
